Prayer of Pope St. John Paul II
O God, You are our Creator . You are good and Your mercy knows no bounds . To You arises the praise of every creature.
O God, You have given us an inner law by which we must live. To do Your will is our task . To follow Your ways is to know peace of heart. To You we offer our homage .
Guide us on all the paths we travel upon this earth. Free us from all the evil tendencies which lead our hearts away from Your will . Never allow us to stray from You.
O God, judge of all humanity, help us to be included among Your chosen ones on the last day.
O God, Author of peace and justice, give us true joy and authentic love, and a lasting solidarity among peoples. Give us Your everlasting gifts. Amen.
